The assumption

The assumption that people, who don't live like you do, are wrong is the most dangerous enemy to peace, progress, equality, hope and the future of mankind. Only an ignorant fool would believe that they are unquestionably right in any thought. Always look for something more correct and loving for others than your current thinking. To stagnate in thought is to become the enemy of the human race.

It's is nearly Christmas, and I want to say Merry Christmas to you all.

Now, I know, many atheists are quite anti-Christmas. I am not one of them. I accept Christmas, even with it's Christian based name, for its Pagan origins. Christians actually shouldn't even be doing the whole Christmas tree thing. At least, according to their magic book, they shouldn't.

Jeremiah 10:2-4:

2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 For the custom of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Of course, there's explanations of why that isn't talking about Christmas trees, but remember, there's an explanation for every stupid thing to be found in the Bible. It keeps people like Ray Comfort busy.

Anyways, seriously, Merry Christmas. Enjoy your holidays. I will.

It worries me the glorification of terrorists by politicians. Terrorists are humans just like us. They may be confused and wrong, but they are nothing mystical, powerful, or special. I say this because I find it nothing short of absurd that the fools, Giuliani in particular, is afraid to have them brought to New York to be tried for their crimes.

It's stupid. They have no power when they're prisoners. They're only men.

What if there is a god as you believe but he isn't a Christian god but instead a Muslim god? Or, more closely a Baptist god instead of a Catholic god? How close to worshiping what god actually is do you have to be to get credit?

Proof of God.

I have heard plenty of arguments for the existence of God and not a single one works. Let's see if I can avoid ranting or drag on in explaining them.

The most recent one to be brought in front of me was the argument of the egotistical or faith-filled atheist. It claims that being an atheist requires just as much faith as being religious. This is silly. We don't claim to know everything. We, in actuality, claim to know much less then religious people do. We don't know how the world began. We don't know where humans came from. We don't know what happens after we die.

We have ideas of how these things work. Ideas based off of reality and I'd rather take ideas over the rantings in a 2000 year old book any day.

It's the relation between facts, theories and hypotheses that most people who make this argument don't understand. Evolution happening is fact. How evolution works is a theory. The thought that the Earth hasn't always been here is fact. The big bang theory is a theory.

As for hypotheses...A hypothesis is an idea that has nothing to back it up. It can become a theory after that and, in some cases, even become a fact.

Christianity is a hypothesis. It has nothing to support it and many proofs against in. In science, if you find proof against a hypothesis, you abandon it and find another one. In religion, you call it faith and ignore all the reality that proves your beliefs wrong.

Another silly argument I hear often says 'Love/Morality/Life/Happiness/Etc. comes from God. Without God there is no (your above choice).' Also, in my opinion, without the existence of Poseidon the ocean doesn't exist.

Attaching your baseless deity to an emotion or behavior doesn't make it exist. Popsicles can't exist without God. Well, since popsicles exist, God must as well. There is no logical application of this argument.

The above behaviors exist within humans simply because, as humans we are social creatures, we can feel pain and like to avoid it, and we have the cognitive ability to notice the emotions and reactions of other humans. Since we don't enjoy pain we assume, quite correctly, that others people don't enjoy pain either. Empathy is natural for a social creature who thrives off of emotional bonds.

Evolutionarily it's simple to realize that a human who works against other humans is less likely to survive than one who does work with others. Fending off predators, gathering food, raising one's young, and improving technology and culture are all things that easily work better with help from others. In common day it is obvious why most people live in cities and towns instead of alone in the wilderness. It is easier to trade labor for money and the money for shelter and food than to build your own shelter and gather your own food.

Assuming you are going to live in these societies, not killing and stealing from others works best. You would prefer no one else would perform these actions on you so, with fingers crossed, you don't do it to them hoping they do the same for you. In fact, though there is always deviants, most people conform to the standards.

This is where laws come from, really. People prefer to not be attacked by others in society. Society flows better when you follow the laws of the society. To be part of the society you follow these rules.

Maybe I'm a rare case, but I have no interest in stealing or killing. It isn't from fear of retaliation from society via fines or imprisonment. It isn't fear of going to hell after I die. It is simply because I don't want to be stolen from. I don't want to be killed. I respect other people's right to life and property. I don't think they deserve to be hurt if they aren't hurting anyone else.

An interesting thing, in relation to this post is the Surrogate Mother Experiment by Harry Harlow. In this experiment baby monkeys were put in a cage with two fake mothers one made of terrycloth and the other made of wire. Even if the wire mother was the source of food, it was shown that the baby monkeys went to the terrycloth mother if a threat was introduced. Food source didn't matter. All that mattered was the source of comfort. Other humans are a source of comfort. Even without a god existing, we would still seek the comfort of other humans.

Any arguments for God I missed you would like me to disprove? Any ultimate proof of God I missed? Feel free to post it. I will believe in a god if you can provide proof for one. Of course, I mean relevant proof that can't point to anything besides a god.

A 2000 year old book could be proof of a god, or it could be proof that people wrote their beliefs down 2000 years ago. The platypus could be proof of god, or it could be proof of the common ancestry of mammals and birds. The 'finely tuned for life' universe we live in could be proof of god, or it could be proof of chance and the fact that if the laws of the universe weren't as they are, we wouldn't be here.

Former Mormon President Ezra Taft Benson in 1967 talking about the attempt by African Americans for equality:
There is no doubt that the so-called Civil Rights movement as it exists today is used as a communist program for revolution in America
Current Member of the Mormon Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Dallin H. Oaks talking about the attempt by homosexuals for marriage equality:
Among the most threatening collisions in the United States today are (1) the rising strength of those who seek to silence religious voices in public debates, and (2) perceived conflicts between religious freedom and the popular appeal of newly alleged civil rights.
'So-called civil rights' and 'alleged civil rights'. I find this hilarious. You know what they say, Wrong once, wrong twice, wrong a thousand times, those mormons are never going to fucking learn.

This is even more ironic when you consider that they're trying to compare themselves to the blacks when, just like they're fighting against the gays now, they fought against the blacks then. Can you say, irony?

The Mormons do it again

You know who's an asshole? Dallin Oaks, of the Mormon church. I'll even call him by his cult title 'Elder' only because he's so old and ignorant.

So, Oaks proclaimed quite a few stupid things this week. First, he compared the ridicule of Mormons after Prop 8 is the same as the oppression of African Americans during the Civil Rights Movement. Yes, being ridiculed for oppressing others is the same as being oppressed. I don't think Oaks even knows the definition of 'logic'.
Even as we seek to speak with love, we must not be surprised when our positions are ridiculed and we are persecuted and reviled. As the Savior said, “so persecuted they the prophets which were before you”
Yes, if everyone around you is saying you're wrong you...are right? Wait, what? You lost me, Oaks. If reality says one thing and you say another, which is right?
Third, we must insist on our freedom to preach the doctrines of our faith. Why do I make this obvious point? Religious people who share our moral convictions feel some intimidation. Fortunately, our leaders do not refrain from stating and explaining our position that homosexual behavior is sinful.
Yes, you do have that freedom and the rest of the world has the freedom to tell you how much of an ignorant, bigoted, self-righteous asshole you're being.
Fourth, as advocates of the obvious truth that persons with religious positions or motivations have the right to express their religious views in public, we must nevertheless be wise in our political participation.
No one is saying you don't have the right to say what you want, they're just making fun of you for it. Oaks needs, very desperately, to learn the difference between ridicule and oppression. The Mormons are being ridiculed, not oppressed.

Also, he's right, they do need to be 'wise in our political participation'. That's a brilliant idea. When are you going to start? I'd like to know because, so far, you've been as dumb as a brick.
Religious values and political realities are so interlinked in the origin and perpetuation of this nation that we cannot lose the influence of Christianity in the public square without seriously jeopardizing our freedoms.
Yes, because your Sky Daddy makes morals so if his fingers aren't up the rectum of America, then America is going to become evil or some shit, right? No, you're wrong again, Oaks.

There's so many other lies in that speech, I could go on all day. I'll just say this: Dallin K. Oaks is a dick.

The whole speech can be found here.

Marriage equality in the real world.

"One of the reasons that many Parents find themselves torn over the issue of slavery is the fear that their parental rights to teach their children right from wrong will be stripped away. They fear that they will be put in a position where they must either pull their children out of public school, or put-up with the potential conflict when Schools teach that black people are equal to white people, and that those that teach otherwise (like their parents) are bigots."

I pulled this from with a few little changes.

How about:

"One of the reasons that many Parents find themselves torn over the issue of gender equality is the fear that their parental rights to teach their children right from wrong will be stripped away. They fear that they will be put in a position where they must either pull their children out of public school, or put-up with the potential conflict when Schools teach that women are equal to men, and that those that teach otherwise (like their parents) are bigots."

History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man.

I just don't understand why religious people are so proud to be so ignorant and controlling. Gay marriage is an issue of equality. You're either for everyone being equal when it comes to marriage or some people being treated better than others. I'm sorry equality is such a harsh concept you don't want your children to learn of.

Keep them ignorant for all I care. Our children, those of us that aren't assholes, will live in a better and brighter future whether you like it or not. The fight for equal marriage is far from over but, just like racial equality, just like gender equality, marriage equality will finish with our side the victors.

International Blasphemy Day

Happy Internation Blasphemy Day, everyone. I bring you this poem from Cuttlefish. Check out his blog as well, it's a good one. The links at the end of this post.

The first amendment means, to me,
The right to play at blasphemy;
The right to say “There is no God”
Without the threat of firing squad.
To speak, or sing, or draw, or write
And not be paralyzed with fright.
To mock Jehovah if I wish;
To point and laugh at Jesus fish;
And though the image strikes me weird,
To pluck Mohammed’s silly beard.
To say such things as I may choose
Regardless of opposing views.

About the pow’r of Holy Writ
I proudly do not give a shit.

Aren't You Lucky

Fox News is, surprise, a source of lies.

I've been saying this for years, if you get your news from Fox, you're an ignorant fool. Fox doesn't report of reality for, as Stephen Colbert said, "reality has a well-known liberal bias." They report what their audience wants them to.

What I'm trying to say is this: Fuck Fox News.

Nationalism vs. Patriotism

I'm going to go over this quick. Nationalism is the belief that the country is always right. Many religious people, who believe America is God's chosen land are nationalists. They have no reason to disagree with God's whims. If America commits torture, that's okay because God wants America too.

Patriotism, on the other hand, are, in many cases, defenders of the ideals of a country. This word has been dragged down in America by that worthless piece of shit called the Patriot Act. That's always a problem. Make an evil agenda and give it a pretty name.

"How dare you oppose the Patriot Act? That's so unamerican!"

Ignorance, you know.

I saw a picture recently that basically said that Democrats oppose spending tax dollars on killed, via useless wars, and Republicans oppose spending tax dollars on healing, via universal health care.

Anyways, peace out.

Gay Marriage

So, again I've been reading comments. This time, it's on this post.

I suppose someone has to write this and it might as well be me. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter what I think or say or I might as well just go for it.

I do not agree with gay marriage. Call me close minded, or a bigot, or whatever vile term you can come up with. It doesn't change the fact that I have a right to my opinion.

Let me start by saying that my closest friend and most loved sister is gay. I love her more than I love anyone else on the planet. I also love her partner. I don't think they should marry.

Marriage really should be between a man and a woman, as God ordained.

I do believe that they should immediately be able to have a legal relationship if that is what they choose to do. I think they should be able to be each other's legal spouses.

But the church (at least any church I have every been to) follows the bible or the Koran or the teachings of Budda. There is no reference to a man marrying a man or a woman marrying a woman.

Call me crazy (or whatever else you like).
This is the saddest case of ignorance I know of. The person knows what is right and yet, because their Sky Daddy says otherwise (or, more accurately, a book, which vaguely alludes to the subject, which was written by people who say they spoke to said sky daddy), they refuse to accept what they know is true.

It's nothing short of sad. I want to go up to people like this and give them a hug then calmly explain to them that it's okay, they'll die and become worm food. There is no life after this life and that's what makes this life so important. You have to live every day to the fullest because there is no reward after it. Our morals are better then that of a fictional creator who a bunch of ancient people created. You don't have to ignore your morals to please him. There is no him. Instead, please yourself, your friends, and your family. Be good because it's good to be good. You don't need any reason besides that.

It's so frustrating that there is so many people like this person out there. People that you know are good and caring who, to avoid fear of their own mortality, act evil and controlling in an attempt to appease a guy they have never met.

I wish there was a way to help them open their eyes and, instead of working for their invisible sky daddy, would work to make both current and future humans lives better.

Who said an atheist doesn't have hope? I have hope for religion to die.

Stupid comments

So, I ran across this little article. It's a bit long, so you'll have to click it to read it. Summarized, it equates the belief in a god to the belief that one owns a dog. Basically, an atheist sees no proof that he owns a dog and thus believes he doesn't. A theist on the other hand sees no proof that he owns a dog but assures you he does, stating it is a faith based thing.

Most theists, who don't outright declare the facts science have uncovered are false, believe in the god of the gaps. The god who exists in places science hasn't yet been filled in.

Anyways, why I'm talking about this article is because of the comments on this article. I will reply to each in turn.

Eventually humans might accumulate enough brainpower to comprehend the vast universe. In the meantime anybody stating ANYTHING conclusive about the issue is just being true to his ignorant nature. The doubters still stand a chance, the athiests are as lost as the dogmatics.

Actually, most atheists don't conclusively claim that there is no god. Most just simply stand on the fact that since there is no proof of a god, it doesn't make sense to believe in one and it is safe to assume there isn't one. I'm sure most theists follow this thought process when it comes to things such as unicorns, bigfoot, fairies, and Santa.

That's cute, but just like most current atheist writings today, you are narrowly defining the beliefs of others for your own purposes. The fact that humans exist and can have a dialog about that existence is sufficient for theories of creation. Now whether you call that process of creation a god and give it a name and personality or just refer to it as physics and biology makes little difference; you still understand that we are creations.

Ah, the good old 'God could be anything' argument. In realization that reality contradicts a sky daddy who created everything, theists sometimes try to blur on observer's understanding of what they actually believe. If you're going to argue for what you believe, don't try to hide what you believe. That's nothing short of silly.

'Process of creation' is a cute term which can be applied to nearly everything. Even evolution could be called a 'process of creation' since it is the way we reached our current existence. This commenter is attempting to sidestep the argument of whether or not there is a creator or not but I've caught his little game.

If you believe there is a deity who created us, you are a creationist. If you don't, you're not. Muddling terms like that is just trying to confuse the issue instead of facing the facts.

Why does the folks at assume there is no dog? The only way there is no evidence whatsoever is if there really is no dog. But no atheist has ever proven the non existence of God (and to be fair, no deist has proven his existence either). But both sides have strong arguments. This article does not explain different terms. Is states that atheism is true if we assume there is no God. So what is the point?
Al: "I have a dog in this house, you just can't see him."
Ben: "Have you ever seen him?"
Al: "No"
Ben: "Have you ever seen proof of him?"
Al: "No, but I have faith he exists."
Ben: "I think I'll conclude that it is highly unlikely that you own a dog."

So, who has a better argument, Al or Ben?

It's called the burden of proof. He who states the claim is the one who has to prove it. In the same way that Al has to prove he has a dog and Ben doesn't have to prove Al doesn't have a dog, a theist has to prove there is a god and an atheist doesn't have to prove there isn't one.

So because you search all of your house and don't see a dog there, you don't own a dog. Fair enough, find me an atheist who has searched all of existence and hasn't found a god and I'll accept that. A better way to say this is to show someone a picture of a random person's mailbox and then ask them if they own a dog. If you have an opinion it has no grounding whatsoever.
Again, an issue of burden of proof. An atheist doesn't have to search all of existence in search of a god. An atheist doesn't have to prove nonexistence of something a theist asserts. The theist is the one who has to prove there is a god.

If someone came up to you stating they're the reincarnated form of Hitler which of the follow would you do:

1. Give him rigorous psychiatric tests to prove he isn't Hitler
2. Ask for proof that he is Hitler and when he doesn't have proof, tell him you don't believe his claim.

As for the other part, if I was shown a mailbox, and told the person who owns that mailbox also owns a dog, I'd shrug and say okay. If you said I should live my life worshiping that dog, I'd request if I could see a picture of the dog. If you said you didn't have a picture of the dog nor any proof the dog exists, I'd laugh at you and walk away.

That's all I have to present to you. As you can see, I hate stupid commenters. I made this post not to call them out, since that wouldn't make a difference, but instead to make an example of them. That's just how I roll.

Glenn Beck

The pulling of advertisers from Glenn Beck is fucking awesome. Wal-mart, Best Buy, Travelocity, Geico, Men's Wearhouse, P&G, Progressive Insurance, Radioshack, State Farm Insurance, and a couple others have all pulled advertising.

Why? Good old Glenny thought it was acceptable to call Obama a racist who hates white people. Surprisingly, slandering our president with baseless lies can piss people off.

Read more on it here


Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. Simply put, I broke up with my girlfriend of two years and have been busy moving into my new place.

Anyways, this healthcare thing is getting crazy. I did find a good post about it though.

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you saw the Abu Grahib photos.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city drown.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when.. when... wait for it... when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all ok with you but helping other Americans... well fuck that. That about right? You know it is.

You people have all lost your fucking minds. You are selfish, greedy, obnoxious, narcissistic, and frankly... stupid. Your pathetic little misspelled protest signs are embarrassing. Maybe you ought to find the smart person in your midst and let them make up all the signs, cause man, you look like a bunch of idiots. Also you're ugly and your mother dresses you funny.

It's okay to choose to help people instead of a god

I submitted the following text to my local paper to try to get it published in the editorial. Truthfully, I'll be surprised if it gets in the paper since I'm in a very conservative place. Anyways, enjoy:

In Richard Carlson's article titled "Hold onto the kite of freedom, our mooring to the Word of God" he referenced a young girl who had be on drugs. Because of her drug use, she'd found herself unable to tell what was real and not.

Ironically I had nearly the exact opposite thought when I first read of this girl. Where Richard thought it could be a metaphor to being confused by a voice besides God's, I found it could be drawn as comparable to choosing religion over reality. Daily people choose creationism over evolution and prayer over medicine.

It is mind numbing to believe that, according to a Gallup poll, only 39% of Americans believe in evolution. It's almost as if people aren't willing to accept the reality they can see with their own eyes when it contradicts their belief in a god. The facts that back up the relationship between reality and science are hard to deny. The only way to really prove them wrong is to ignore them.

The fact is that slavery was always wrong. Even if in the Bible it says it is okay and it was legal in the United States until the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862, it was never okay.

For the Mormons, polygamy was a fine for bolstering their numbers until they decided, or should I say their god decided, it was a good idea to stop so Utah could become a state.

More often then not religion has changed the "unchanging Word of God."

In reality, the truths of morality that have always been correct and will always be correct are as follow: If it hurts someone else, it is evil. If it aids someone else, it is good.

The world isn't getting any worse. When Richard said, "When we were children, who would have though of sending powder, poison powder in an envelope with the hopes of ending the lives of others?" did he consider the evils we once did that are unacceptable now?

If today, two nuclear bombs were dropped on a foreign nation, would we not be mortified? Are we not now above treating people as second class citizens because of their race or sex? When Richard was a kid, that wasn't a crazy idea. Luckily, today, we are no longer in a society that supports sexism and racism.

In reality some evils fade and new ones appear to replace them but, even without a god to worship, we will fight for good. Don't waste your time reading a book from 2000 years ago to try to find the truths for today. Slavery, racism, degradation of women, genocide, and infanticide are all in the Bible and they're all completely utterly evil.

This is absurd.

WAUSAU, Wis. – An American flag flown upside down as a protest in a northern Wisconsin village was seized by police before a Fourth of July parade and the businessman who flew it — an Iraq war veteran — claims the officers trespassed and stole his property.

A day after the parade, police returned the flag and the man's protest — over a liquor license — continued.

Nationalism (not to be confused with patriotism) is a sad and pathetic thing.

There's a few hilarious quotes to be found in the news article. From Marinette County Sheriff, Jim Kanikula:

"It is illegal to cause a disruption," he said.
No, it isn't. At least, not in the way that Congine did it. What is illegal, on the other hand, is what they did. A legal protest can't be controlled like that. Even if Congine was breaking the law, Breaking the law to stop others from breaking the law isn't logical.

Village President John Deschane:

"If he wants to protest, let him protest but find a different way to do it," Deschane said.
In what way? A less effective one? Congine obviously pressed some buttons, which is the point of a protest.

The article finishes off with a great quote from Congine in reference to his serving in Iraq:
"It is pretty bad when I go and fight a tyrannical government somewhere else," Congine said, "and then I come home to find it right here at my front door."
We do have quite limited rights when it comes to some things but, luckily, in the instance of protest, we're quite free.

So, recently, I've gotten to arguing about time with a few people.

As my opinion stands, time is the term we use to say that events are occurring. It is, simply, what happens between two events.

So the argument appears when you argue whether time has always existed. I say it has. Even without matter or energy to create events to be measured, time can still pass. You just don't have any way to measure it.

I find this theory to be more logical then saying that there needed to be a first cause for time since, technically, without time passing you could never reach that first cause.

A first cause for matter and energy is logical. Time, on the other hand, I don't see as logical.

Jesus stole my wagon

One of the worst arguments I've ever had leveled at me is the 'You're just mad at God' one. So stupid.

It reminds me of the wonderful bumper sticker:

Most religious doctrine is either evil or a 'no duh' sort of thing, but it doesn't cause people to do evils, it allows them to. Never-the-less, it is the people who choose to do the evil.

Atheist Blogroll

In the beginning...

In the beginning...who cares? Where we came from, where we're going. It doesn't matter. What matters is the here and now. Right this second. How it all began, that ultimate question of the beginning of time, it doesn't matter.

It could have been a god, it could have been the big bang, or it could have been something we haven't even imagined yet. It really doesn't matter. Whether or was 6,000 years ago or 13.5 billion years ago, it was before any of us were born. Being so, it doesn't matter a cent. It's okay not to know.

Come on, just let that rush over you. It is okay not to know. This works for the afterlife too. Whether there is one or not, it's okay not to know. You don't have to say heaven exists. You don't have to assert anything. Just accept that you don't know.

So then, what's the point of life? Have fun. Be excellent to each other.

That's it. Those two sentences encompass life. There isn't anything more to it. Love those around you while they're here. Miss them when they leave.

I know it's a cliché to say this, but life's too short. Most of us have less then a century on this earth, so make the best of it. Don't waste it on uncertainties. God may exist, god may not. It doesn't matter.

Your family and friends do exist. Your life with them is short. Don't waste a second.

Ray Comfort is Amazingly Stupid

In a recent blog post on Ray Comfort's Atheist blog, a found this tidbit:

An insightful scientist once said that evolution has done nothing for humanity. Time has proven him wrong. Evolution has become a massive money-making business. The faithful flock to buy books, bones (do a search on the massive fake fossil industry), DVD’s, magazines, made-for TV documentaries, and it all evolved from nothing but the molehill of one man’s imagination. The whole-hearted embracing of the Theory of Evolution without empirical proof, is a sad testimony to the gullibility of the human mind.
Now let me replace a few words in that...

An insightful scientist once said that religion has done nothing for humanity. Time has proven him wrong. Religion has become a massive money-making business. The faithful flock to buy books, paraphernalia (do a search on the year sales of crosses), DVD’s, magazines, made-for TV documentaries, and it all evolved from nothing but the molehill of ancient people's imagination. The whole-hearted embracing of Christianity without empirical proof, is a sad testimony to the gullibility of the human mind.

Seriously, did he realize he's leveling the same claim against science that is leveled against religion? Can he really be that dense?

Besides, evolution is purely based off of empirical proof of experimentation and observation of the natural world, so I can't figure out how he defines people as "embracing of the Theory of Evolution without empirical proof."

If Ray Comfort revealed tomorrow that his Christian demeanor was just a big hoax used to point out the stupidity of religion and believing things without any substantial evidence, I would slap my forehead and laugh at myself for falling for his deception. I just don't understand how people can believe an ancient book instead of reality.

Cover Yourself in Gold for god

Raised as a Mormon, there was often LDS paraphernalia on the walls.

One I remember was a map of the world showing the location of all the Mormon temples in the world.

According to their own page there is 129 operating temples. Then there's also thousands of churches, over 50,000 missionaries across the world, and over 300,000 high school students enrolled in seminary (the special Mormon way of sneaking church into school).

Now, I do know that, as is with most churches, they do donate money toward good things but...imagine if they had not spent all that money on 129 of these:
And instead spent that money on helping the world. Why do we need 129 of these across the world for them to do their archaic rituals of magical marriages and post-death baptisms. That's a lot of money for such useless actions.

Of course, I'm not saying they're the only church that spends money wrong (and they're not even the worst), but they're the one I'm familiar with. Being that they're newer then most of the other big ones, they're perfect proof that we won't be seeing a religion that works toward helping people. They will always work toward helping themselves.

god is Evil

My aunt, who's a facebook friend of mine just posted in relation to her daughter, Shiloh:

"Shiloh and Orlan just got hit by a 4 wheeler in Orlan's car. Glass shattered all over the kids. Everyone is ok. So blessed to watched over by angels."

It took all my strength to stop from posting a reply such as "If angels were watching over them, why did the accident happen at all?".

Whether religious people like it or not, god is either evil or not omnipotent. If he can stop something from happening, such as an accident, 9/11, slavery, or the Holocaust, but doesn't, he is evil. It doesn't matter his reason for letting those things happen, letting them happen is evil.

Edit: She just posted today that "Orlan ended up with a broken rib from the accident yesterday." I guess those angels didn't try hard enough.

Is god a Believer?

Does he believe someone created him? If he is an atheist, wouldn't that be foolish to believe in him? I mean, he probably isn't religious, right?

Why would Christians believe an atheist created them?

Pathetic creationist comics

Remember, with Jesus, modern day wonders are evil. Well, unless you can make profit from it.

That comic is from

If you've never visited the site, do. It's a website for young earth creationists who think dinosaurs were alive just 5000 years ago.

Here's another good one:

Of course, the irony they miss is that they pick and choose which sciences to agree with. It gets even funnier when you consider they're biblical literalists who mock people who don't take the bible as complete truth. Oddly, at the same time, they only take the science they want.

Here's one of their comics making fun of people that don't follow the bible completely:

Anywho, one last comic:

Don't forget, you're a worthless evil being who needs the power of the great sky daddy and his son to be worth anything.

Waterboarding is torture

Now we just need to get Sean Hannity to go through with his claim that he will do it. Then, after that, get Dick Cheney. That evil ignorant fool is probably too big of a coward to do it.

Torture can't be hidden

Whether you believe torture is acceptable or not (it's not), you must agree that the government has no right to hide it from us. If we're a democracy, where people have the power, why would the government be allowed to make such decisions without our consent or without even letting us know. A dictator like Saddam Hussein would be cheering on the American government for lying to its people.

Dick Cheney, the spineless asshole he always has been, is throwing attacks at Obama for his plan to release photos of the major misconduct of American soldiers on May 28th. That coward knows he's fucked when people find out the evil that occurred under that bible thumping idiot, Bush. He was an ignorant monster. The bad taste left behind by the Bush administration will be worse then that left by Nixon. The good news is we don't have a worthless shit like Ford in to let Bush and Cheney off like Nixon was let free.

It doesn't matter if you're the president or not, there is no living person who should be allowed to commit crimes without being punished for them. If we're lucky, Bush and Cheney will be condemned by history so that children 500 years from now learn of those wretched liars we had to deal with.

I must only hope that this was a learning experience for you, America. America has been wounded, by its own stupidity.

What's ironic is that, even as he tries to heal the wounds, the stupid conservatives fight against Obama. They refuse to unite with the rest of America. They're so egotystical that they can't admit they were wrong for the last 8 years. They're stupid. If they can't rule, they're not willing to let America prosper at all.

If there's anyone stupider then the current Republican leaders, I've never met them.

As you surely know, torture has been a big topic for a while now. It's a sad world we live in when this is even questioned as an available choice.

Unless you're enemy is stupid, those that know the information will never give it up, and those that would give up information don't know it. The more important point is that, most simply, torturing used as a weapon against terrorism is an oxymoron. Torturing is, without question, terrorism.

Sadly, America, at least during the Bush administration, was the biggest terrorist nations in the world. Don't worry, my explanation follows:

From Wikipedia's entry on terrorism, with my own links afterwards to display where America as performed each of these actions: Terrorism is, most simply, policy intended to intimidate or cause terror. It is more commonly understood as an act which (1) is intended to create fear (terror), (2) is perpetrated for an ideological goal (as opposed to a materialistic goal or a lone attack), and (3) deliberately targets (or disregards the safety of) non-combatants. Some definitions also include acts of unlawful violence or unconventional warfare, but at present, there is no internationally agreed upon definition of terrorism.

(1) Just search Google images for Iraq torture.

(2) A quote from George W Bush, before entering office: "Tomorrow, I will take an oath and deliver an inaugural address. You'll be pleased to hear I'm not going to deliver it twice. But I will speak about freedom. This is the cause that unites our country and gives hope to the world and will lead us to a future of peace. We have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom, and America will always be faithful to that cause."

Now I'm not saying Bush is the only one to subscribe to dogma and narrow world views, but this quote is a compact display of one.

American ideology of freedom is that of freedom of democracy (not from it. I'm not arguing whether or not democracy is right or wrong, just that it shouldn't be forced on anyone), Freedom of religion (many will argue that doesn't mean freedom from religion, though. Just ask them if 'under god' should be taken out of the pledge of allegiance), freedom of speech (that's why the ' Free speech zones' are setup where no one can hear you), and plenty of others I don't care to list.

One of the main problems America has in it's ideology is that, at least for most Americans, ego is a major deal. America is an insanely egotistical nation. "We have a calling from beyond the stars". Yes, someone's god has chosen us to lead the rest of the world.

Really, I don't want to waste my time arguing this. Basically, America's ideology isn't perfect and, until it is, there's no reason to force it on anyone. Share it? Yes. Force it? Never.

(3) Use of white phosphorus is chemical warfare which is used to intimidate and cause fear, so this one also works for the first point but, in this article it speaks of a corporal Nicholas Bogert. It says: "Bogert is a mortar team leader who directed his men to fire round after round of high explosives and white phosphorus charges into the city Friday and Saturday, never knowing what the targets were or what damage the resulting explosions caused."

If you don't know much about white phosphorus, here's an image of what a wound from it looks like: (DON'T CLICK THIS LINK IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED) A very minor wound.

Okay, I know I really strayed from topic to topic on this one, but my whole point is that, most assuredly, America is nothing close to perfect. We need to admit our flaws and, if we want to help the rest of the world, stop doing the evil we're trying to stop. Torture is barbaric. I don't care if, in limited cases, it gets the job done. I know there's plenty of hypothetical cases people can make up where it is useful but it still don't contradict the fact that torture is inhumane.

As a last note, I don't care about 'under god' being taken out of the 'pledge of allegiance'. We just need to skip that step and take the 'pledge of allegiance' out of America. I will never pledge my allegiance to an imperfect nation. I will pledge my allegiance to freedom of speech, equality, or any other good, unchanging value. I will never pledge my allegiance to something like a country. Besides the pledge of allegiance is only useful for brainwashing small children.

The Catholic church is stupid.

I have given up on the Catholic church. Completely given up. They are idiocy and evil combined.

Why do I believe this? This is why.

To summarize the story: A 9-year old, Brazilian girl was raped by her stepfather. She got pregnant with twins. When her mother took her to the hospital the doctors told her they doubt the girls body could bear the pregnancy.

Under Brazil's laws abortion is legal in cases of rape or where the mother's life is in danger. In the case of the 9-year old, both were true, so they aborted the twins.

Now then, who's in the wrong? Who did evil? Logic, at least in my opinion, says the stepfather.

The Vatican disagrees with me. They swooped in and assured us it was the mother for allowing the abortion and the doctors for performing it. They were all excommunicated from the Catholic church for it.

Here's a quote from Archbishop José Cardoso Sobrinho in reference to the father: "He committed a serious crime, but . . . there are many other serious sins. Abortion is more serious."

Yes, you read that right. Raping a 9-year old is not as bad as that same 9-year old getting an abortion so she won't die during the pregnancy.

Maybe I understand sex better then catholics but, as I see it, if the girl hadn't been raped she wouldn't have gotten pregnant. I know, I'm fucking crazy to draw that conclusion. It's as if the stepfather caused the whole problem in the first place, but is he excommunicated? Fuck no, he's not as evil as those doctors that chose to rectify his action and save a little girls life.

But wait, the catholic church thinks differently. Another piece from the article: "doctors concluded that the girl’s immature hips made childbirth exceedingly dangerous, prompting church officials to argue that she be forced to carry the baby to term and then have a cesarean."

If the doctors didn't want to be chastised by the Catholic church they should have done nothing for the girl. The mother should have watched as the twins grew within her little girls body until she was bedridden and, eventually, dead.

When chastised for they complete stupidity in the matter the Archbishop said: “We know that people have other ideas, but if they do, then they are not Catholics. We want people who adhere to God’s laws.”

All I can say is, I'm fucking glad I'm not a Catholic. I could never be that evil.
